Making Brownies From Scratch Can Be A Treat

There is nothing as delicious as biting into a freshly baked brownie. But if the only brownies you've ever had are from a package mix, you are in for a treat. Obviously, these brownies requires a little more work, but it's worth it. This recipe, in particular, features a coconut topping.


* 1 four oz package sweet cooking chocolate
* 6 tablespoons butter
* 2 tsp vanilla
* 2 beaten eggs
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 2 tablespoons milk
* 1 cup all purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
* Coconut topper:
* two egg yolks
* 2/3 cup sugar
* one can evaporated milk
* 1/4 cups butter
* 1 cup flaked coconut
* 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Backing Steps

1. Melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan; stir constantly. Remove from heat. Add eggs, sugar, milk and vanilla and mix well.

2. Stir together flour and baking powder and pour into chocolate mixture. Stir the mixture throughly.

3. Pour into a waxed paper lined baking dish, or a greased round 9x9x2" baking pan. Bake at 350˚ F for 15 minutes.

4. Spread with coconut topper and bake for 25-30 minutes more. Don't overcook - the center should be fudgy, not dry.

5. Cool and cut into bars.
